Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another website.

    CF Epistle (Parody) TO THE MOST HIGH AND MIGHTY PRINCESS, Becky, by the Grace of God, Administrator of Christforums [DOT] ORG, NET, and COM, DEFENDER OF THE FAITH, etc. The MEMBERS and STAFF of CF wish Grace, Mercy, and Peace through JESUS CHRIST our Lord. (1) Great and manifold were the blessings, most dread Sovereign, which Almighty God, the Father of all mercies, bestowed upon us the Administrator of CF, when first he sent His Admin to rule and reign over us. For whereas it was the expectation of many TROLLS, who wished not well unto our WebSite, that upon the settling of that bright Occidental Star, of most happy memory, some thick and palpable clouds of darkness would so have overshadowed this Site, that men should have been in doubt which way they were to walk; and it should hardly be known, who was to direct the unsettled members and staff; the appearance of His Admin, as of the Sun in her strength, instantly dispelled those supposed and surmised mists, and gave unto all that were well affected exceeding cause of comfort; especially when we beheld the TOS established in Your Highness, and Your hopeful Staff, by an undoubted Title, and this also accompanied with peace and tranquility at home and abroad.... The Lord of heaven and earth bless our Administrator with many and happy days, that, as her heavenly hand hath enriched our Staff and members with many singular and extraordinary graces, so she may be the wonder of this site in this latter age for happiness and true felicity, to the honour of that great God, and the good of CF, through Jesus Christ our Lord and only Saviour. Administrators: @Becky and her role as a volunteer: Answers incoming member email or messages regarding general staff or member issues, technical problems, service questions and general member concerns. Responsible for maintaining a high level of professionalism with members and working to establish a positive rapport with every member. Update member profile information or assist in customer service. Work with the staff moderator team so that they may stay updated on any changes in site policies. Address member issues with moderators assist moderators with problematic members. Moderators: @Origen @ConfessionalLutheran @David Lee and roles as volunteers: The members of a forum convene to discuss specific topics and it is the duty of the moderator to encourage lively debate and discussion that is enriching to all participants. The moderator also answers questions that may arise in the course of the discussion. In online forums, moderators also have a duty to update the website with all the latest developments. Topic Control: Every forum has topics and it is up to the moderator to ensure that the discussion stays within the topic's parameters. For example, if the topic of thread in a forum is omniscience, the discussion needs to stay within the boundaries of such an attribute and cannot extend towards your favorite Christian TV show. In the event that the thread appears to be straying, the moderator guides the discussion back to the stated topic.Therefore, moderators ought to be knowledgeable about the topics they present or allow for discussion. Orderly Conduct: It is the responsibility of a moderator to maintain order during discussions and to see to it that all participants behave with courtesy. Forums involve the exchange of ideas whereby participants air their views and sometimes engage in debates about the identified topics. Therefore, there is a possibility of the discussion becoming unruly particularly where the forum topic is controversial. Moderators order the forum by keeping the discussion civil and constructive. They share the rules of the forum, which may prohibit abusive language, derogatory comments and such other offensive behavior. Content Relevance: A moderator has authority to determine the content of a forum so that it is relevant. The duty is especially useful in online forums where the moderator can edit the content of the discussion, move contributions that are not directly related to a given topic and even delete contributions that are not relevant. The moderator also protects the integrity of the discussion by doing away with contributions that are unlawful or illegal in any way such as defamatory statements and copyright infringements. Forums gain more popularity when the content therein is consistently relevant to participants. Webmaster: @William and description of duties: Build a functional CF site and oversee the maintenance and ensure interoperability. Test and maintain CF across multiple browsers, operating systems, and devices. Maintain, configure and troubleshoot the server which CF resides. Ensure site security. Optimize loading speeds and capacity of CF. Update website software. Monitor and analyze site performance (e.g traffic, conversions).

    Hello Everyone. I have recently come out of a five year bender being with the Jehovah's Witnesses. It has been an overall devistating expereience for me, especailly coming out because I feel like what I was hoping for has been ripped away from me, and I was living under tight rules for nothing. I am two years out now, but I feel like my soul has been burned, I still have the mindset, that God is going to be angry with me if I do not do things the right way. Prior to joining I was raised in a baptist family and currently attend a baptist church with my mom. But I feel as if I can't get back to my basic faith and beliefs. I was hoping I could receive some prayer and guidence from this site. Thank You for the opprotunity to tell you my experience.

    Jesus is not being called God, He is God. Period. Scripture repeatedly points to this. He is God the Son. Within the hierarchy of the Godhead, He is at the right hand of God the Father.

    Nope, I completely disagree. The Bible is written so we can understand who God is, and His love He has for us, by sending His one and only Son Jesus Christ to be our Saviour for those who believe on Him. John 3:16.

    The title of your thread offends me greatly! This is a Christian web site, and to even suggest such a thing is beyond my understanding. If you had a question then ask, but to make a thread like this is disrespectful. I am deeply concerned for you.

    Some times letting a person speak reminds us we need to be on guard, ready to STAND for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are in His army. Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 2Ti 4:16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. 2Ti 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 2Ti 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    William you might consider making it a requirement that unless you tell us something about yourself you can't post until you do. This person is one more that has attacked the Lord Jesus Christ. I expect we want to be friendly and perhaps he might be enlightened by the Gospel, but it is IMO risky as he makes no bones as to where he is coming from. Just my lame opinion. God bless, have a GOD day.

    We don't care what you think. We were willing to allow you to stay for the time being because we find asinine posts such as yours mildly amusing. But now we must say no thank you to your heretical claims. Like I said we have heard it all before. There is nothing even remotely interesting about you or your post.

    Knotical is correct. This is an orthodox Christian forum, by Christians for Christians. We feel no compulsion to entertain or address atheism, cults or any heretical views. We have heard it all before. You should have read the TOS.

    Or, you could stop trolling this site with your heretical views.

    I am ignoring heretical views of Jesus. Not much intellectual integrity wrapped up inside heresy.

    That's enough for me. You see the signs of sexual harassment or assault and there's no reason to think that the person in question would refrain from doing the same to your daughter.

    Whether America was great or not depends on the standard you use to determine greatness. Compared to most other countries America has been and still is great. Yet until the Civil War slavery was tolerated and for a hundred years after racial discrimination was legal in many parts of the country. Measured by God's standards there are no great countries in the world and there never will be until Jesus Christ returns and takes over the rule of the earth.

    Hatred of sin there is bound to be, Loathing of evil heresy. Heresy is departure from Biblical and Confessional truth, Herchurch and HFASS in the ELCA fit that, in sooth. If they could be brought to confess and repent, Then our time in prayer would have been well spent. The Law and Gospel change not with the times, Regardless of your or my pretty rhymes. Love for a sinner means not to encourage their sin, Pray that the Holy Spirit might change them from within. Lutherans may determine the heresy of those who Lutheran call themselves, As Lambeth for a few years put TEC back on its shelves. God is good, mighty and just, In His Word alone ought we to trust. Transient values of decadent society today, Touch not the Eternal Law of the One to Whom we pray. Andrew Robert McDonald Gooding, Commonwealth of Virginia, 11:07 post meridiem, Eastern Daylight Time, Sunday, September 01, 2018.

    I have had three surgeries in the last 55 days and your prayers are deeply appreciated. Yesterdays surgery lasted one and a half hours/ They removed one large kidney stone on my right side. They also went up into the right kidney and removed several other stones that they could remove. I am suffering greatly today. In several places in Scripture we read that suffering actually a time for me to reflect just how much Jesus Christ Suffered for not just my salvation but for whom ever reads my post. Jesus Christ has given me so much Grace and Mercy! How awesome is our Father and Jesus Christ, and how deeply the Holy Spirit has interceded on my behalf when I could not utter anything because of my suffering. Have you ever suffered so much and the pain was so great that all you could do is pray "Father help me"? My prayer is that this post might be of encouragement to some dear soul that is hurting. God bless to you read this.

    The Bible clearly teaches that there is only one God, one Lord, one Creator, and only one Savior … and that Jesus Christ is Lord, Creator and Savior. Clearly, Jesus Christ is God. He has power over death, the elements, forgives sins (only God can forgive sins !) ...

    Prayers to God for you are ascending, @lostlamb. I can't even imagine the turmoil you must be going through. I suggest that you definitely adopt a daily prayer routine and Scripture reading, talk to other believers and trust the Holy Spirit to do His work within you.

    The attached file is from a Bible Study on the Deity of Christ. There are many references to His Deity. I often find this file helpful. Deity_of_Christ_Bible_Study.pdf

    Sorry but Christ is the Lord, co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead, as indicated in Scripture.
